White fillings—are a great modern option for dental care—providing easy installation, solid construction and great looks.

Talk to us about the benefits of white fillings, also known as resin fillings or composite fillings. Our elite dental team can treat a cavity and fill it with a bonded white resin so you can enjoy a natural look and smile. Or, if you would like to replace an existing silver amalgam filling with a natural, custom tooth-colored resin restoration, we can do that, too.
Advantages of White Resin Composite Fillings
A white filling made of resin composite is commonly used to fix a tooth that has been cracked, broken or decayed. In the past, silver amalgam fillings were used to repair teeth, but many dentists and patients prefer white resin composite fillings, which provide numerous benefits over traditional silver fillings.
Enjoy the many advantages of a white resin composite filling:
- More aesthetically appealing than silver amalgam fillings
- Blends in with your existing natural teeth for a great smile
- Stronger material than amalgam, which can expand with heat and contract with cold temperatures
- Not prone to flexing and weakening like amalgam
- Cemented to the tooth, unlike amalgam
- No gap between the filling material and tooth, unlike amalgam fillings
- More natural tooth structure can be left in place when installing a white filling
- No risk of side effects from mercury amalgam fillings
